* In ''TheDresdenFiles,'' the Necronomicon ''once'' had real power, but the rituals' power loses effectiveness as the number of users increase, making it a ''literal'' example of ItsPopularNowItSucks. Publishing it widely has rendered everything in it entirely useless.

* The Factor 5[=/=]StudioGhibli DS collaboration, ''VideoGame/NiNoKuni,'' came with an actual "spell book" as [[{{Feelies}} a pack-in]]. The spell book will contain instructions on how to cast spells in the game world, as well as providing information on the game worlds themselves. For the PS3 version, the entire book was replicated digitally in the game, with pages becoming available as the story progressed, but players who scored the fairly rare Wizard's Edition also received their own physical copy of the book.

The plot of the third episode in the series involves Kshin disobeying this rule in a misguided attempt to teach a gang of bullies a lesson.

* Creator/HPLovecraft's ''Necronomicon'' is often used as an example, and in his short story "The Dunwich Horror" Wilbur Whately needs a complete copy because his version is missing a key formula.

* Creator/HPLovecraft's ''Necronomicon'' is often used as an example, and in his short story "The Dunwich Horror" Wilbur Whately needs a complete copy because his version is missing a key formula. With his hearty approval, other weird fiction writers of his era used the name, which Lovecraft thought helped make it feel realy. It has even appeared in book catalogs and library records.

* Hayate Yagami's Tome of the Night Sky in ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'', which went through a period of being a [[ArtifactOfDoom nastier sort]] of spell book that would gather spells by draining the {{Mana}} of others before it was cleansed. Reinforce Zwei also has her own spell book called the Book of the Azure Sky.
